About me

My passion for health and wellbeing then grew when my husband faced health challenges, and I made it my personal goal to help him to feel better. They had a predisposition to the symptoms of IBS, SIBO, candida, leaky gut, sleep issues, anxiety, stress, hormonal imbalances and cravings which led me to find Patrick Holford’s books and subsequently to begin studying at the ‘Institute for Optimum Nutrition’.

I can help you to achieve your goal, whether that be to reduce bloating, lose weight, improve skin, decrease brain fog, rebalance hormones or increase energy - which should in turn all help to increase your productivity and general enjoyment in life. So, whether it be cravings, dietary choices, stress, sleep, nutrient status, gut health, compromised immunity or food sensitivities, we can work together on a programme that may include blood tests, functional tests and meal planners, along with a deep reflection into the matrix of your overall wellbeing to help you to ‘optimise your health, to optimise your life’.

Information about health conditions (*)

Nutritional therapy can help enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting nutritional therapy or making any major changes to your diet or lifestyle.
